“Although I know I am setting myself up for abuse, this is NOT an article about poor white men feeling like they’re under attack. … I care about the same agenda supported by many of those people who throw ‘check your privilege’ around like it’s some magical defense against the dark arts…”
3 Ways ‘Checking Your Privilege’ Never Fixed Anything

#3. “Check Your Privilege” Makes Assumptions
In a very odd way, “check your privilege” is kind of racist, because it assumes someone’s background dictates their opinions. Of course, we are all products of environments, but do you really think you can sum up someone’s entire argument, if not existence, by referring to their background? You may not call it their race, gender, orientation, or social stratus. You call it their “privilege,” but, ultimately, that’s just code for saying, “Hey, your opinions are wrong because you’re ___.”
Aside from the dangers of assuming someone is privileged based on appearance, you’re also assuming that background leads to only one conclusion. You’re judging someone based on where they’re from. Assuming why they believe what they believe. It’s behavior beneath the dignity of someone who allegedly cares about prejudice and discrimination.

50 Dead Giveaways That You’re an Amateur Writer | LA Screenwriter

I’m going to share this for my screenwriter friends who want to know. However, we film our own scripts, and if you do that, many of these don’t apply to you. What we write is as much a shooting script as a story script. That’s part of the advantage of producing our own material — we get to control every aspect of the process.

My blog in list form. Read and enjoy.

Is it really that big a deal to write with celtx or word?

Do whatever you want. I’m setting the camera up wide. No close-ups. Comedy only happens when there is a relationship. We’ll see both you and Bill at the same time. Comedy lives in the two shot.

Harold Ramis

This is one of the single most important statements made about how to direct a comedy. I am not exaggerating. Shittier comedy directors focus on closeups, so you can see actors make silly faces. Great directors use more wide shots, so you can feel how everyone reacts.
